I had heard of Putumayo, and as a world music fan, I always wanted to get my hands on one of their collections. I finally got Putumayo Presents: Cuba at a music store in Nashville and I was hooked immediately. Every track is great, but, as a fan of the more fast-paced Latin music, I would have to say that my favorite tracks are "Compositor Confundido" (by one of my favorite Buena Vista estrellas, Ibrahim Ferrer), "Campina," "Sabroso Como el Guarapo," and "Mamí Me Gustó," & "Boliviana" (2 classics). Also worth mentioning is "Al Vaiven de mi Carreta," which demonstrates the emotional oice of Eliades Ochoa (another star of Buena Vista) and "Mecanica de Amor," which is a very great "hip-hop" style song (Hip-Hop has in recent years become very popular in Cuba, I've heard). This disc is definitely a must-have for any Cuban music or worldbeat enthusiast.
